When he’s hungry and there’s no snacks around, he’s the WORST.
- Ever dealt with an annoying cat when they’re hungry? It’s essentially him
- He’ll just start poking and complaining to Mahiru, who insists there’s food but “You know what I mean, snack food!”
- If that doesn’t work, he’ll shift into cat form and crawl into Mahiru’s lap “You wouldn’t let such a cute cat starve, right?”
- Mahiru just kinda shoves him away, very rarely does he give in
- One time while Mahiru was studying, he didn’t even respond to him. Kuro just sat in another chair, with his chin resting on the table, staring at a cup
- Kuro then looks up a Mahiru with a fearless stare “don’t you dare!” *CRASH*
- Mahiru only uses plastic cups now
- When there’s no cereal or other breakfast foods, mornings are hell
- “Mahiru, there’s nothing to eat.” “Kuro it’s 7 AM, can you not?”
- Kuro will just sit cross legged on the bed, or right on top of Mahiru, staring intently before Mahiru goes “fuck it” and makes something to eat
- Sometimes he can slip back into his room really quick and lock the door
- But later on when he leaves, Kuro looks at him, utterly betrayed
Ren does not resent Nora. He is not sadly resigned to her presence in his life. When Nora went down defending him from an Atlesian Paladin’s punch, he instantly forgot about the battle going on around him and the enemy that just struck her. He rushed to her side, more concerned about her condition than anything. He didn’t even think to try looking after himself.
The two of them have been together their whole lives, “even when all other hope was gone”. Ren cannot stand the thought of losing her.
If Ren is silent as Nora spends their debut scene yammering endlessly into his ears, it’s not because he doesn’t care what she has to say and tunes her out. He just doesn’t have anything he feels is important enough to say in response, and he knows he doesn’t have to say a word for Nora to keep their “conversation” going. He lets Nora share every thought that comes into her head.
He also listens to what she has to say. When he finally speaks up, it’s because Nora was making a mistake about what sloths sounded like. He cared enough about Nora to kindly correct her.
He didn’t tell her to shut up. He didn’t tell her to leave him alone or to stop making plans for the two of them to team up. He didn’t even necessarily point out a flaw in her plan, since it hardly mattered what animal she thought she sounded like as long as he knew what sound she would make. If anything, it’s more like Ren decided to play along when he felt Nora was getting simply too silly.
When Nora appears after he defeats the King Taijitu, Ren expresses absolutely no frustration that she either failed to get to him in time to fight the massive Grimm… or may have actually sat back and watched him work. He smiles! His first words to her are teasing. He is playfully mocking when he says, “I still don’t think that’s what sloths sound like.” Why is he wasting time acknowledging Nora’s silliness, instead of scolding her to take the initiation seriously? Because Ren has a sense of humor too, Nora’s presence makes him happy, and her antics brighten his day.
When she pokes him in the nose, he’s still smiling! Even frowning at her impertinence, he’s smiling. They’re playing a game with each other, prodding and joshing each other as close friends do. Even correcting her about her own dream could be taken, not as Ren getting fed up with her antics, but rather Ren taking harmless shots at her for his own amusement.
Watch Ren whenever Nora is talking. He’s watching her. He’s listening to her.
Part of the reason why Ren is so quiet is because he has always had Nora to do most of the talking for both of them. He only pipes up after Nora has wound down, generally to let everyone know that he stands by her position. He doesn’t simply let Nora have the first move, he lets her choose the game.
Because Ren can afford to be so quiet, he’s learned to choose his words carefully. When he speaks, he means every word, speaking with purpose and conviction. This puts a strong spin on how he told Jaune that he also considered him the brother he’d never had. Ren didn’t need to say that – he could have deflected Jaune’s confession with a mumbled “yeah, sure” or something else non-committal. But instead, he expresses loyalty to someone he’s only known for one semester – someone who is vastly his inferior as a huntsman.
That also means something, because Ren is diligent. Nora claimed he was “the perfect student”. No one develops his level of combat skill and Aura manipulation without working hard. One could pass that off as “those born outside the walls must fight to survive”, but I think Ren is pursuing a goal. There’s still that village which was so important to him. I think Ren wants to become a huntsman in order to protect that village or another one like it, and he’s willing to devote his life and risk his death for that cause.
He came to Beacon with pride and purpose and preparation, and the leader assigned to him is Jaune Arc. But despite knowing that Jaune is their weakest link, Ren actually sort of sticks up for him. After Nora nervously kept pointing out how Jaune was the one most likely to bring them down in their Teams Round match, Ren asked Jaune if he was really not going to defend himself, which suggests that Ren thought Jaune wasn’t so bad that he needed to take that kind of bad-mouthing without complaint.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, but Ren can be really sarcastic in his own laid-back way. He favors a dry, off-hand delivery without any spite; a straightman who delivers the tsukkomi just because he thinks it’s funny to tease the bokke.
Remember when Jaune warned his team that he might vomit during their match? Ren chided Nora for being disgusting with her suggestion that Jaune aim for the enemy. So we know he doesn’t appreciate crude humor, or at least disrespectful behavior.
But since Nora already made the joke, he sees nothing wrong with taking the opportunity to make one of his own. “Still, if you get the urge.” Once again, we see Ren playing along with Nora, poking fun at someone else (Jaune and the opposing team), and revealing a sort of positive connection to Jaune (in that he implicitly would applaud Jaune for such a maneuver).
He certainly doesn’t groan, roll his eyes, wonder why he’s stuck with these losers, ignore them, or simply walk away. He engages and participates.
“Perfect Student” Ren willingly participated in the food fight, and though he didn’t shout or taunt like the others, he applied himself with real effort, first with the watermelons, and then with the leeks. The only time he ever protested any contribution to a fight is when he was ordered to distract a nested sniper. But though he was understandably sour about the idea, he nevertheless threw himself into it.
Later, he tries to push past his injuries (his ribs must have been bruised at least, and possibly cracked or broken) in order to accompany Ruby on a mission to find Jaune and Pyrrha. Mister “Energetic About Almost Nothing” was exhausted and truly hurt, but he was ready to charge into Grimm infested territory to rescue the rest of his team.
He cannot think of losing Nora. He accepted Jaune as a brother. For someone who has so little family to his name, Pyrrha’s death must have hurt Ren as much as everyone else. When Ruby meets JN_R for their journey to Mistral, Nora doesn’t speak first. It’s Ren who takes the lead in assuring Ruby and asserting their mutual desire for answers and justice. It’s personal for him, too.
Before their match with BRNZ, Ren summarizes his team’s feelings of anxiety to RWBY with his usual soft sarcasm. He doesn’t act aloof, but actually implicates himself as being nervous as well. He’s less dramatic about it than Nora, and less concerned about it, but he’s also worried about how a poor performance would reflect on their team.
Ren has his pride. When Nora blamed Ren for her being hungry (just before Team RWBY left for Mountain Glen), he snubbed her without remorse, clearly convinced that he had done no wrong. Let’s also not forget how badly he took it when Nora thwarted all of his careful training with a simple tag-back.
One of Ren’s little passions is healthy food, and cooking in general. When he’s cooking up a stack of pancakes, he doesn’t hurry. He takes his time with it, humming, smiling, and looking very satisfied and content. However much skill with cooking he has, he’s proud of it.
When pushed too far, Ren is not above taking easy opportunities for silly pranks or petty vengeance, as seen when he’s getting ready to pour the syrup all over Nora’s head.
Observant as he is, Ren doesn’t bother with paying attention to everything going on around him, especially in terms of others’ relationships. Nora is watching Pyrrha try to court Jaune and parrots Pyrrha’s own advice to Jaune back at her; Nora is the one who crows when Jaune takes Pyrrha to the dance floor, while Ren is confused about what is going on – Nora is also the one who pushes Ren away from the moment that Jaune and Pyrrha were having right before the fateful PvP fight.
Also, it’s likely that Ren doesn’t know Nora has a crush on him. If they’ve really known each other their whole lives, then they would have developed blind-spots with each other; expectations about how each will act or feel, based on past experiences and accumulated misunderstandings. Nora is also good at masking her signals within her usual cacophony of noise.
1. Sloth, the demon here looks like a mushroom theme. Reminds me of use of herbs in medicine, mainly sleep aids. Could be incense related because of the smog and smokey body surrounding him/her.I rearranged the letters a few times in an anagram and also found the latin translation for sloth and thought that sounded like a cool name.
I want to say this is her potion, looks like a tablet in there. Sleep medication ? or maybe some sort of sedative.
2.Gluttony, the only evidence that points to this sin being associated with him/her is the animals in her pact page. The animals seen have cuts or scars where the stomach, head, and legs are. Could be coincidence but that’s commonly where you eat from an animal.Every time I tried to anagram the name it sounded all wrong so I stuck with the original latin translation of the word.
This has to be the gluttony potion, because a tooth is inside. Relates again to eating stuff.
3.Greed, The various gems and crystal bodies seems to point in that direction. The plan page also shows him/her holding crystals in one hand while some ghosts loom behind. I’m taking a stab in the dark here but could this demon have killed for wealth ? Once again latin translation gives us a cool name, and also anagramming it.
This would be their potion as it has little gold pieces in it. Further tying into the possession of wealth and riches.
